Support the FEH Scholarship Challenge

Special note from ECE Campaign Committee Chair Bob Borel:

Over the next several weeks, ECE Campaign Committee members Mark Morscher and Liza Toher-Reed are working to take an ongoing Ohio State University engineering scholarship challenge “over the top.”

By raising $8,000 before June 30, their efforts will become a reality.

The Fundamentals of Engineering Honors (FEH) Program at the university was created for students in 1993 to promote both technical engineering skills and critical “soft skills,” such as team work, communication and project management.

Reed said taking part in FEH as an ECE student ultimately transformed her professional future.

“I changed my major from math to join the FEH program, and was overwhelmed with the experience, the support and the camaraderie,” she said.

Reed joined on with her fellow alumni to make an endowed scholarship that gives back to FEH and helps create even more future engineering leaders.
Borel said the FEH Scholarship Endowment Challenge was launched and ultimately raised $42,000 for the FEH Program. He said the effort had two goals – provide younger alumni with a way to give in areas they feel passionate about, while simultaneously qualifying for the Ohio Scholarship Challenge.

Edging nearer to their goal, Borel said the department now has an opportunity to help by raising an additional $8,000 for the campaign over the next three weeks.

“If we qualify for the Ohio Scholarship Challenge, the university will match the endowment payout for perpetuity,” Borel said. “We need a total of $50,000 cash in hand by June 30 to remain eligible.”
